Jam Session

In honor of Bill Monroe, the Father of Bluegrass Music (Sep 13, 1911-Sep 9, 1996), two Bill Monroe classics will be the featured songs at this month’s jam: “Blue Moon of Kentucky” in the key of G, and the instrumental “Big Sandy River” in the key of A. Download chord sheets for “Blue Moon of Kentucky” and “Big Sandy River”

The PineCone Bluegrass learning jam at Harry’s Guitar Shop on the third Wednesday of the month is specifically for those who are learning the basics of bluegrass music and playing with other musicians, and it is open to all ages. Jef Walter, a local musician who plays bass and guitar with Charles Pettee & the Iron Mountain Messengers and other groups, will once again facilitate this month’s jam to assist jam participants who want to learn basic jam etiquette before jumping into a traditional jam.
